On Friday 18th September from 2-4pm, Tom Mudd will be guest for the discussion group. The group is informal and all participants will be welcome to share their thoughts and ideas. We’ll be discussing recurring themes in Tom’s practice, evolving, continuous systems, and the relationship between technologies and musical areas like Rhythm and Drone. Plus new ideas from the residency and various tangential and semi-related thoughts.
Tom Mudd is a musician and programmer interested in relationships between software, composition and improvisation. His current work explores new synthesis methods through the use of Duffing oscillators coupled with banks of resonant filters. The resultant systems have many properties in common with acoustic systems found in reed or bowed instruments. Tom’s other works include Nonlinear Dynamical Systems – a research project investigating the use of nonlinear dynamical systems in digital musical interfaces; Porcelain Music – An ongoing project exploring the sounds of Walther Stürmer’s porcelain sculptures. With Tobias Stürmer and Akāshamitra; and Haptic Interfaces – a research project investigating haptic interfaces for new musical instruments stemming from a STEIM residency.
